Pull And Push

 

What I really want to do is fold myself in a canoe 

Push out far into the pond I think I'd stay to see the dawn 

It's the ultimate art, this dedication to escape 

It's the ultimate escape, my obsession with this art 

So I'll push out in the lake 

Virtuoso artist at escape 

And meantime you just stand and say 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

The only thing worse than not knowing what I want 

Is being immobile with the fear of knowing what I want 

So I am sitting here on this pile of indecision 

Not chancing the definite stance of a position 

I am flexible as clay 

I'll go whichever way you wish 

And meantime you just stand and say 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

I wish that I could prove I never scribble across a line 

But my journal's filled with inkblots that would catch in the lie 

It's a hypocritic maze how I'm torn on every page 

It's the contradictor's road that I travel everyday 

On the fence where I sit 

Direction's relative 

And meantime you just stand and say 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and push 

You cannot simultaneously pull and 

pull and 

pull and 

pull and
